Right now, we obviously don’t know what exactly our next step will be…but we are about 99.5% sure we will be going the IVF route. I can’t really explain how I feel about this.
I have been reading as much as I can about it (it’s how I handle things, I read as much as possible,) and already wish I knew about 75% less. This, the egg retrieval process, falls into major surgery. I’ve never had surgery, of ANY kind. I’ve never had anesthesia, of ANY kind. I’ve never had a prescription for pain meds, of ANY kind. Now, it could be all three at once. The amount of medication seems to be astronomical, and quite intimidating. Again, there’s NO certainty with this. Yes, chances increase drastically, I’m talking upwards of 40%, but even then the odds don’t really seem to be in your favor.
I should be getting a call tomorrow to schedule our next appointment to determine next course of action. For now, I’m going to stop reading about IVF, because it truly scares the bejesus out of me.
